Haaland's ship wrecks

Borussia Dortmund officially enters a crisis after losing 2-1 to Freiburg. This defeat endangers their place for Europe.


Borussia Dortmund officially enters a crisis after losing 2-1 to Freiburg and almost certainly ends the day out of the positions that give direct access to Europe. If Borussia Mönchengladbach score at least one point this afternoon in the Rhine Derby against Cologne, BVB, which conceded two goals against Christian Streich's in just three minutes, would fall to seventh in the table. The points difference compared to Bayern at the top of the Bundesliga already amounts to a total of 16 points, a figure that raises alarms in western Germany at such mediocrity.

Not even Haaland could avoid the disappointment. The Norwegian only had two chances during a first half in which Freiburg managed to contain Borusser's power in attack to decide the clash in their favor in three minutes of sheer madness at the start of the second period. A left foot from Jeong and a right from Schmid that missed the goalkeeper Hitz put Hitz's men against the ropes. The mister didn't think about it. He gave entry to Moukoko (Reinier remained on the bench) to try to turn the scoreboard, the 16-year-old German puppy cut differences to Haaland's pass, but, finally, Freiburg resisted and ended up causing a medium earthquake in the Signal Iduna Park two weeks away from facing Sevilla FC in the Champions League round of 16.

Schalke 0-Leipzig

The one who did not puncture was Leipzig. With Dani Olmo and Angeliño in the eleven, Julian Nagelsmann's men this time did not have their best day in attack. Even so, they managed to beat Schalke 0-3 on the road thanks to a powerful header from Mukiele and two assists from Imperial Angeliño (he has already been eleven this season) that Sabitzer and Orban were able to materialize. In this way, the East Germans remain second and restore the difference of seven points with respect to Bayern. On the contrary, Schalke, who are still at the bottom and now five points behind the penultimate after Mainz's 1-0 victory against Union Berlin.
